Goldsmiths Jewel HD is an interesting Windows Phone puzzle game where you are tasked with collecting an assortment of jewels while avoiding non-precious stones.

The game, available for low-memory devices, seems to rely more on luck than skill though. You collect the gems by initiating a line that bounces around the screen. When the line hits a jewel (or stone) they fall to the bottom of the screen and are considered "collected".

Goldsmiths Jewels HD does have a certain amount of appeal and does grow on you slightly.

In just playing WordsUp for a short time, it comes across as a challenging and fun word game that will not only test your skills at spelling but also has an element of strategery.

Today, Microsoft released the gameplay launch trailer for the title from Insomniac Games and, while not quite as mind blowing as the live action clip, it has some cool elements as well.

Earlier this summer, UK-based developer VooFoo Studios and Ripstone (who also published Stick it to the Man) announced That Pure Pool would be coming to Xbox One as part of the ID@Xbox program. Pure Pool is set to be the first pool game (and I don't mean the kind of pools that The Sims 4 lacks) on Microsoft's latest console. The Playstation 4 and PC versions landed in July, but the Xbox One version has seemingly been stuck outside of the pool hall, waiting for the bouncer to let it in.

It looks like the line has been moving for Pure Pool after all, because we just got some fresh Xbox One screenshots in today. The creators even promise that a release date will be announced within the coming weeks. I'm betting mid-late November. That's prime pool game season, if you ask me. Especially because it'll be too cold to hop in the pool outside by then. Keep reading to check out the new screens and details!
